Solar Gard, a developer and manufacturer of flexible films and backsheet materials, today introduced PV FC10f to its line of solutions for photovoltaic (PV) modules. This new PV backsheet provides increased protection and durability for solar module manufacturers.
Solar Gard PV FC10f is an adhesive-free backsheet that delivers benchmark performance for the electrical isolation and barrier properties demanded by module manufacturers. In addition, the bright white backsheet is designed to give improved reflection for higher module efficiencies.
To reach these high performance levels, PV FC10f incorporates a proprietary durable protective layer for environmental protection. The exclusive scratch- and mar-resistant layer provides excellent long-term durability and is matched for adhesion to the junction box. PV FC10f also has a functional coating for enhanced adhesion to ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA).
Solar Gard PV FC10f is Underwriters Laboratories (UL) recognised and performance tested at TÜV and outperforms third-party testing criteria. The PV FC10f is available in flexible roll form to fit a wide range of panel sizes and configurations and is manufactured in the US and China. Solar Gard is a division of Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics.
